    Greetings Luella Elementary Family,


    It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Luella Elementary School. I am delighted to be a part of the Luella Elementary Family. Our school community has dedicated, talented members committed to doing what is in the best interest of our students. We will continue to put students first at Luella Elementary and work diligently to ensure their success.


    My professional background is noted in education and leadership. For the past twenty-three years, I have worked in public education as a teacher, professional learning specialist, literacy coach and as an assistant principal. One of my goals is to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success. Along with the staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Luella Elementary by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners. My motto is, “Student First, Every Day,” and I believe all children should receive an exemplary education in an environment that is safe and conducive to learning, while advancing opportunities, access, and outcomes for all students.


    I am honored and humbled to serve as the new principal for Luella Elementary School and I look forward to meeting our students, teachers, parents, and community partners. I value your input, support and the impact that we will achieve as a family. I believe when we work together great accomplishments will happen for our students and I look forward to celebrating our collective success this school year.



    In partnership,


    Dr. Twyla Barkley
